This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Out of interest, is there any reason you want to use a GUI for git? I use SVN professionally every day and git for hobby projects most days, but I find I am faster using git via the terminal than I am with a GUI for SVN, even doing the same tasks. – gabe3886 May 5 '15 at 16:28

My prefered git gui is "SmartGit" (http://www.syntevo.com/smartgit/) because you can use the "gitflow". Since you've said that your beginner, you should start with learning "gitflow". It will help you afterwards... your coding will be "Agile" ready. Here is a basic course on "gitflow" (http://danielkummer.github.io/git-flow-cheatsheet/).

Have fun!


Another ting to mention is the git gui. This can be started from the terminal: git gui

If that didn't work, you may install the git-all package:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install git-all

and when the installation is complete, run the git gui again.

Good luck using git, you may find it confusing in the begining, but it's worth learning and will be usefull for sure!
